Summary
  • James Marston Fitch provides a fundamental theory of buildings
  • Fitch systematically examines the various aspects of the environment that buildings control for human habitation - air, temperature, light, and sound, even space, time, and gravity. He draws on scientific research to probe deeply into
  • these problems, and he sets out the most practical solutions to these and other issues in clear, precise language
  • Moreover, his analysis runs to the external environment as well, as he explores the impact of buildings on the outside world
